Archery at its best

At the inaugural Horseback Archery Competition at the Luxor Corrals Riding Facility near Spur Valley  on Saturday, July 6th, Tom Kelner from Montana shoots arrows at a moving  target while riding a 99-metre track  on his horse. Points were awarded for running the track in less than 20 seconds, and  for the number of arrows closest to the bull’s eye. No hands on reins were permitted, only the bow and arrow. The  mounted archery event drew competitors from the Lower  Mainland as well as the United States. Photo by Robin Myers
